This 520-acre roadside park is tucked away along U.S. 43 in rural Marengo County. Complete with modern campsites, a wading pool, rental pavilions, playground equipment and plenty of green space, Chickasaw State Park is perfect for family gatherings or as a base camp for your Black Belt adventure.
The rural setting of this park provides ample opportunity to slow down and observe your surroundings. A day spent wildlife watching along the park’s perimeter will likely pay off in several white-tailed deer, Bobwhite quail, and Eastern wild turkey sightings.
In addition to wildlife watching, Chickasaw’s birding is particularly good during the migration seasons. As a stop on Alabama’s Black Belt Birding Trail, you’ll you encounter a wide variety of birds including northern flickers, white-eyed vireos, indigo buntings, ruby-crowned kinglets, palm warblers and many more.
Picnic tables and grills are located throughout the park. Four large pavilions are also available for group gatherings. One of the pavilions features a large built-in barbecue pit. Pavilion reservations can be made by calling 919-630-9239.
Adjacent to the Turnipseed-Ikenberry Place Physically Disabled Hunting Area and a short drive away from the David K. Nelson Wildlife Management Area, Chickasaw State Park is a great overnight spot for hunters in the Black Belt area. The park features three modern RV sites with water and 30-amp service. Primitive camping with water and electricity is also available. Restrooms (no showers) are available.
The park is being operated under a partnership between the Alabama State Parks and Marengo County. Please contact the Park Manager at 919-630-9239 to make campground reservations.
